Emergency Shelter Grant Funding Announced
Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC) announces the 2011
Balance of State Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG) recipients from the April
11, 2011, application round. Forty-seven applicants will receive a
total of $1,390,609 from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban
Development (HUD) to assist the homeless in Kentucky.
Many nonprofits and local governments across Kentucky use ESG funds
to provide necessary services to help persons who are homeless by
getting them back into housing and to help families stay in their homes
thereby preventing homelessness. Last year, it was reported that over
15,000 persons were served through the ESG program in the Balance of
State (all counties except Fayette and Jefferson).
For more information about KHC’s ESG program, visit KHC’s Web site, under Specialized Housing, Programs, Emergency Shelter Grant. You may also contact Jill House toll-free in Kentucky at (800) 633-8896 or (502) 564-7630, extension 705; TTY 711; or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
